Think Pink - Blog Hop

It's time for a Magnolia-Licious Blog hop! This months theme is "Think Pink".  If you arrived here from Mindy's Blog, you are on the right track. If not, you might want to start at the beginning with the Magnolia-Licious Hightlights because I am certain you will not want to miss all the sweet treats that the DT have for you this month!!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) is an annual international health campaign organized by major companies every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.  The Pink Ribbon symbol was used in 1993 by Evelyn Lauder as the symbol of The Breast Cancer Research Fund she founded and is used to symbolize the fight against the disease.  We also honor those that have fought the battle and who are currently fighting the battle while raising awareness to ALL women to be aware of the symptoms and to be proactive against the disease.   Want to find out more?  The National Breast Cancer Foundation HERE for those in the US and globally at the site HERE!
  • In 2011 Nearly 1.5 million women across the world were told they had breast cancer
  • One-third of breast cancer deaths can be decreased with early detection and treatment
  • In the US 1 out of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer over their lifetime, an estimated 527 women are diagnosed in the US with breast cancer each day
The Magnolia-licious DT wants to help promote awareness/early detection and share what this Think Pink Month is about with ALL women!  We also want to honor all of those women that have or are currently fighting this disease and show our support in the fight!!  To show our support the DT has planned our own “Think Pink” Celebration and we hope you can all join in.  Each DT gal has created some Sweet-PINK treats and PINK Packaging to match using those beautiful Magnolia images.  You can find some Magnolia stamps that were created specifically for Pink Ribbon Awareness at Magnolia-licious   .  So have fun hopping along to see all the fabulous Pink-a-licious Creations and make sure to stop back by the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog to join in on the fun too!

For my treat box I used Tilda with Christmas Baking. She is currently available in the store. I colored her with Copic markers. The Breast Cancer Awareness was hand drawn by myself. I then colored it and cut it out.

I created the box myself. I knew I wanted a rectangular box, so I just sketched some dimensions and made the box lid a tad bigger. It was the perfect size for my chocolate chip cookies!

So next on the hop is going to be Patti Jo!!  So hop on over to her blog and see what sweets she is sharing!

-Tracy <~~ You are here!
